While I may be a relatively new member of DDO, the fact that this happens is astounding to me:

Can someone explain to me what this 'election' thing is and how it works? It seems interesting, but I just don't understand what it is.

We elect a president every 6 months on DDO.

I hope you will consider voting for me. Although, the election is not until June.
President of DDO

What is the president even do? Is it just an honorary position or do you actually impliment policies or things?

Its someone finding an excuse to make a thread dedicated to himself about a topic that won't be relevant for another 3-4 months.

Can someone explain to me what this 'election' thing is and how it works? It seems interesting, but I just don't understand what it is.

Its an election to pick a representative of the community that would be in contact with the owners of this website,...suggesting new features and voicing the concerns of the members.
